Frank Wrathall has been sentenced to 21 months in prison after pleading guilty to careless driving.
The 27-year-old British Touring Car driver was involved in a fatal collision with a cyclist on May 14 2012.
Wrathall was originally charged with causing death by dangerous driving, but the case was postponed after it was first scheduled to be heard in July last year.
Last month Wrathall pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of careless driving at Liverpool Crown Court, where he was today sentenced to 21 months imprisonment.
He was also disqualified from driving for four years.
Wrathall has driven for his family-run Dynojet Racing team in the BTCC for the past three years.
The team had already sold its assets to United Autosports, which will make its series debut this season.
