IN THE words of Austin Powers "yeah baby."

Westlawn Finance has done it again taking out the much sought after Gold Cup at the Jacaranda Festival business talent quest for the fourth year running.
Team leader Jacob Andrews said he was "over the moon," with the group's performance which included songs from Queen, the Rolling Stones and the Spice Girls.
"We practiced for three weeks and had two months of preparation time," said Mr Andrews who was dress as Austin Powers.
In terms of the secret formula for winning it seems the age old method of a good environment proved the trick again.
"Plenty of staff spirit, participation and beverages," said Mr Andrews.
