Schemes differ a lot in speed of different tasks, but Racket is one of
the fastest ones. Factor 2 difference sounds plausible. For a
comparison, see the r7rs benchmarks:

That said, I have seen 10x speedups in Guile code when people went for
optimizing it.

Could you give the shell commands to setup and run your speed-test?
