THE two drivers who engaged in a high-speed street race that killed Wagga man Craig Smith in 2017 are set to be sentenced early next year.
Ashmont's Joshua Aaron Byrne and Batlow's Matthew Thomas Cahill appeared in Wagga District Court on Friday when Judge Gordon Lerve set February 7 as their sentencing date.
Byrne, 21, appeared in person while Cahill, 19, appeared via videolink. In September, both pleaded guilty to one count each of manslaughter.
Court documents state that the two men were racing each other at more than 140km/h on Coleman Street, Turvey Park, before Byrne's Holden Commodore went onto the wrong side of the road and smashed into Mr Smith's ute.
The 53-year-old died after the impact caused his ute to travel up to 30 metres.
In court on Friday, Judge Lerve also approved an application to vary Byrne's bail conditions to see a psychologist in Sydney.
Bail for Cahill was revoked in September when his solicitor Zac Tankard requested it.
Judge Lerve ordered for no other matters to be listed on Byrne's and Cahill's sentencing day.
