Trivia

  • His character artwork is the same of Al Oft.
  • He is voiced by and modeled after Colin Cowherd in the US dub.
  • In the UK dub, he is renamed Lofty Crofty and is voiced by David Croft. Additionally, some of Lofty's dialogue is different to Colin's (although the Blu-ray and DVD subtitles in the UK still show Colin's lines despite being changed to show Lofty's name).
    • When explaining about who should be coming in second to Ripslinger, Lofty adds "the" before saying "...three-time defending champ..." Additionally, he shortens "who is" to "who's" when saying that Ripslinger is seeking to become the first four-time winner in the Wings Around the Globe.
    • When Colin announces the racers coming onto the runway, he says "The racers are making their way to the runway." Lofty instead says "Here come the racers onto the runway."
    • After the first leg starts, Colin says "The winner of the leg today is the first to take off tomorrow." Lofty instead says "The winner of today's leg will be the first to take off tomorrow." Also, Lofty says "Well" before saying "That's right, Brent."
    • During the Germany to India leg, Colin says "Brent, this could be Crophopper's leg, all the way." Lofty instead says "Brent, this is a leg made for Crophopper."
      • The name "Lofty" is also used in the TV series Bob the Builder for a blue crane.
  • In the Polish version, he is called Karol Kozak.
    • In the Polish version, Brent Mustangburger calls him the Zimoch Editor in a certain scene.
      • This is a reference to the name of Tomasz Zimoch, the Polish actor who gave the voice of Colin/Karol in the Polish version.
