about to is a more fuzzy term than set to . If a race is set to start all the horses are in the starting gates, or the runners are on their blocks, waiting for the gun. If a race is about to start it could be that the horses are just coming out or the runners are doing their warm ups. The race will start shortly. Set to means it is about to happen immediately.
