Valentino Musetti (born 7 January 1943 in Pontremoli, Tuscany, Italy), often known as just Val Musetti, is an Italian-born English[1] film and TV stuntman and retired motor racing driver. Highlights of his career include finishing third in the Shellsport International Series in 1977.[2] In 1978 he finished fifth in the Aurora F1 Championship. In the late 1980s he drove in the FIA World Sportscar Championship. He competed in one round of the 1991 British Touring Car Championship at Donington Park.[3] With a privately entered BMW M3, he finished in thirteenth place. That year he also entered the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but his team failed to qualify.

He has appeared in many TV programmes since the 1960s, such as The Avengers, Callan, Doctor Who (credited in the TV serial The Crusade), Space: 1999, The Professionals, Minder and Dempsey and Makepeace. He has worked as a stuntman on many TV programmes and films such as The Italian Job, The New Avengers, Superman II, An American Werewolf in London, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Alien 3 and Midsomer Murders among others.
