Motorcycle drive-by and pull away

Hi all, I’ve recorded some motorcycles during drive-by and pulling away where I have the following questions:

  1. On the drive-by, the recording starts off quiet, quickly gets very loud as the bike passes the mic then fades away equally as quick as it gains distance. Is there a method within Audacity that I can increase the volume at the start of the recording, keep it the same as the bike passes the mic then increase it again as the bike gains distance?
  2. Similar to the above question, on motorcycle pull away, the bike rapidly gets too quiet as it roars off down the test track, is there a method that I can continually increase the volume of the recording as the bike gains distance from the mic?
    Many thanks, Jon
