    FafhrddAs in my other comment to the other solution, don't forget you have a boost button, so use it :)

    You can also win the race and turn around to get the gnome and bring it back. Just don't go through the fence at the end of the race if you want to do that.

    In Episode 2, you will be saved by DOG prior to reaching White Forest. After a bunch of talking, Alyx will challenge dog to a race to the base. You must win this race using your car, which really isn't all that hard as long as you don't crash.
