A motorcyclist who lost control during a race at Perth's Barbagallo Raceway and fell into the path of his competitor has died.

The 22-year-old rider was rushed by ambulance from the Kings of Wanneroo event to Royal Perth Hospital on Saturday but later died from his injuries.

"Racing is in close quarters and it just couldn't have been avoided," Motorcycling WA chief executive Rick Gill told 6PR radio.

Police are preparing a report for the coroner.
