An interesting study was carried out by the makers of "Rory The Racing Car" children's programme to find out whether girls or boys are naturally the better drivers. Over 70 children from local nurseries traveled to Brands Hatch to take the the wheel and have a drive round in a fleet of toddler's electric cars.
Marks our of ten were awarded for:
- spatial awareness
The children had to drive in a straight line, reverse and manoeuvre obstacles.
The results showed that 34% of boys were better at concentration and spatial awareness. But, when it came to dexterity and listening to instructions it was the girls who did better! In a straight line, 20% of boys did better than their fellow girls.
Who knows if boys or girls are more tailored to driving... it depends on who you ask!
